You can go pretty fast with it. It only took me about 20 cigarettes before I got the feel for what I was doing. I can't say how long it takes me to make a carton. I've bought four plastic cigarette cases that will hold 18 smokes each. Then my wife has a couple of cases that hold fewer. Anyway when it's time to roll I'll put on an album and I'm usually finished well before the last song even starts to play. I'm never in a hurry when I do this.
RYO cigarettes seem to burn a little longer than store bought. I've been smoking fewer without a doubt. They also taste better and my smoker's cough has gone away. Not to say these are healthy...of course they're not. But maybe they're a little better than Camels or Marlboros or whatever. Maybe. Who knows?
But they're definitely cheaper. $14.00 shipping for a pound of tobacco. About 2-3 dollars per box of tubes. You can buy the machine, some tubes, and a pound of tobacco for what a carton costs ($60 or so in my area).
The only negative to rolling your own is it's kind of a messy endeavor. The stuff gets all over the place. That's a small price to pay, though, really.
Manufacturers warranty: one year. You have to pay to ship the item, and enclose a $12 check to have it shipped back.
Obviously, the main reason why most people consider RYO cigarettes is the cost savings and it is significant, but there are other benefits as well. First, you can get much higher quality tobacco with no additives or chemicals and minimal processing. There are numerous brands and varieties of tobacco available and with a little experimentation, you can even create your own blends by mixing different tobaccos to get the exact flavor you like.
This machine is designed to work with either king or 100 mm filter tubes, so all you have to do is select the size you prefer, insert a tube onto the fitting on the side of the machine, load the chamber with tobacco, then pull down on the lever to automatically roll the cigarette and eject it from the machine. Switching sizes is fast and easy. There's a small plate with a thumb screw which is inserted for king sized cigarettes. To make 100's, you simply loosen the thumb screw and remove the plate.
There are several YouTube videos demonstrating use of the machine. I watched a couple of them before starting my first pack and had no problem at all using the machine. I had a couple of concerns that turned out to be unfounded. First, I wasn't certain how difficult it would be to pack the tobacco correctly so the cigarette didn't have gaps or voids, or conversely over-packed which makes it difficult to pull down the lever to roll the cigarette and also makes the cigarette hard to draw properly. It turns out that packing the tobacco to the correct density is almost instinctive. Tobacco is fairly springy, so unless you really apply excess force it's hard to over-pack it. I had a couple of cigarettes in my first batch with small voids in them. due to under-packing. Initially, when I tried to tamp them down to fill the voids, it didn't work but all I had to do was to roll the cigarettes gently between my fingers to loosen the tobacco slightly, then tap the filter end against the table a few times to tamp the tobacco properly, ending up with a little left over paper at the open end which burned away immediately when I lit the cigarettes.
After some internet research, I decided to buy a couple of different tobaccos to start out with. The ones I chose were both made by D&R tobacco, which seemed to have the highest ratings from RYO smokers. I bought mine online from Nationalcigar.com. The blends I chose were their Windsail Platinum and their Vengeur Platinum, both priced at $24.50 per pound. There are much cheaper tobaccos available but even the best tobaccos are so much cheaper than buying cigarettes by the pack that I decided to start out with one of the top rated brands. I also bought three different filter tubes to see which ones I liked - Zen Blue 100's and Zen Blue Kings, and D&R Windsail Elite 100's. I haven't tried the kings yet, but both of the two 100's are fine. I have a slight preference for the Windsails. Although the filters are the same length, the Windsail filters are noticeably denser, taking a little more effort to draw. They seem to filter better and produce a smoother, milder taste.
Almost all RYO tobacco is sold as "pipe" tobacco to avoid the higher taxes on cigarette tobacco but work fine for rolling cigarettes in the Top-O-Matic machines. In fact, one of the YouTube reviewers commented that "cigarette" cut tobaccos don't work as well in the machine as pipe cut tobacco. At any rate, I love the Windsail Platinum, coupled with the Windsail 100 mm filter tubes. It produces a light, smooth smoke with no harshness but plenty of flavor, much better than any of the store-bought cigarettes I've smoked. I generally smoke Marlboro Light 100's and these are better in my opinion than the Marlboros, at less than 1/3 the cost.
For reference, you should get about 2 1/2 cartons of kings per pound of tobacco or about 2 cartons of 100's. Thus, at $24.50 a pound, the tobacco cost works out to about $10 to $15 per carton, depending on which tobacco you buy and whether you're rolling kings or 100's. The filter tubes will cost an additional $2.50 to $4.00 per carton, so your total cost per carton will run no more than $15 to $20 per carton, perhaps less. It took me about 1/2 hour to roll my first pack because I was still figuring out how to use the machine. I think with practice I should be able to roll a full carton in about the same amount of time.
UPDATE: 1/11/17 - I've been using the machine for several days and have made a couple of cartons of cigarettes (about 15 packs, actually) for myself and friends. Although I'm not an expert yet, I've learned a few things that may be helpful to other newbies.
First, the process can be a little messy and clean up is much easier if you use some sort of tray. I found that a regular cookie sheet, which I already had on hand, works great. I use a small brush to clean the machine after each use.
I've found that I prefer using the 100 mm filter tubes, even if I'm rolling kings, as further explained below. The Zen Blue 100's are cheaper than the Windsail Elite 100's and both are fine. One thing that bothered me at first is that if you pack the tube fully, you end up with excess tobacco extending out from the open end of the cigarette, which will either fall out and make a mess or, even worse, fall out after lighting it and burn your clothes, etc. The easy solution is to pinch out the excess with your fingers or cut off the excess with scissors, then tamp the cigarette by tapping the filter against a tabletop. However, I accidentally found a much easier way to solve the problem. What happened is that I'd been making king-sized cigarettes and switched to 100's but forgot to remove the sizing plate, so I was using 100 mm tubes with the machine set for making kings. The tobacco almost fills the tube but never overflows from the open end. This has now become my standard way of rolling my cigarettes. The 100 mm tubes are more expensive but are still cheap so I don't mind. Also, I've found that my 100's burn almost twice as long as packaged 100's, so I usually only smoke 1/2 a cigarette at a time. I've filled an ashtray with clean cat litter and it works great for extinguishing a cigarette without crushing the end so it's easy to re-light and smoke the remaining half later.
Of the two D&R tobacco's I've purchased, I prefer the Vengeur Platinum. It seems to have a richer flavor than Windsail Platinum but is still very smooth and mild. I may try some other tobaccos and filter tubes in the future but I'm very satisfied with my initial choice and may not even try others. My cost is working out to about $13 per carton using a premium tobacco and 100 mm filter tubes, including shipping. If low cost was my primary objective, I could buy "value-priced" tobacco and king size filter tubes and bring the cost down to well under $10 per carton.

I think the shipping took way to long! Should be a option for faster shipping!
